Dear future husband – You need to know this

I am yet to write you a letter about the moon, stars, and roses.  It seems like my first letter to you,  was also not exactly romantic.

But I swear this letter is needed.

You probably have seen me, out and about.  If not in person,  then surely in my #ootd on this blog.

Your future wife loves to look after herself.



But there will be days that this will be the face you come home to.

This face is called ‘I have the flu/cold’

In this event,  you have to provide either one or all of the following.

1. Cough syrup.

2. Eye drops

3. Spray for my nose.

4. Allergex for my allergies.

5. Cold water with slices of lemon and ice blocks…because I love it.

If you want me even better,  just add Shekinah in the mix.

Once a month,  for about a week,  my eggs are busy practising for the future babies we want. I might appear like a demon is being exorcised from my body in slow motion.  My bladder hurts, my back hurts,  and although you deserve to touch my boobs  because you put a ring on it,  my boobs hurt.  My emotions goes as follows: hungry,  angry and irritated. And then finally sad.


I do not see cooking and cleaning as a women’s job,  but I do love it. I love making good food for us, cleaning the house for us,  but. .. but for that week I’m doing nothing.  I want food ordered in.  It will be a good idea to also stock up on chocolates,  strawberries,  fresh artisan bread, coca cola,  100% chocolate cake and meat.


It will be helpful to buy me fashion magazines.  Let Shekinah help you pick a few. Elle and Vogue are always good options. And pads.  Yes, I said the word.  Pads.  I like the one with wings.

Legend has it,  that there might come a time where all of the events mentioned above happens in one day. It’s not a myth. Actually, this is me right now.

I have a cold, my body hurts, my nose is blocked, I have my period,  my back is hurting and I’m hungry.

But that’s nothing.  You know the worst feeling is,  everything in your body hurts and but can’t fall asleep.   So what do you do?  Write a post of course.

  1. Well I guess it aint me you’re looking for baby, as Bob Dylan like to sing over and over, but ouch, sorry isn’t this the second cold in the last few weeks, hope you feel, stronger and better soon; this was a fun but thoughtful piece that entertained well. Hope you got the pads and some mags and the Shekinah is keeping you warm. Get better soon, best wishes and blessing Charles.

    • Hey Charles! Now the song is stuck in my head ‘
      You say you’re lookin’ for someone
      Who’s never weak but always strong
      To protect you an’ defend you
      Whether you are right or wrong
      Someone to open each and every door
      But it ain’t me, babe
      No, no, no, it ain’t me, babe
      It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe.”

      Hahaha! Yes it is. I think it’s cause of the weather. Going from summer into autumn. Some days it feels like winter already, and the next day it feels like summer.
      Thanks so much for the well wishes! Send my love to Gen! Best wishes and blessings 😊😊

      • Thanks Chantal, yes I am waiting with great anticipation for the rains, imagine, June is only a week away and no major storms yet. Get well, keep warm, create some groovy clothes and accessories for your new boutique. Best wishes and blessings, Charles.
